Well, I'd planned to take the kids to the zoo on Sunday, but it was super rainy and my husband was hella sick (just a nasty cold!). But when we thought we were going, I knew it was going to be cold and the kids needed new gloves, so I took some of my fleece stash (that the kids had already claimed, lol) and made up a pattern! The ones on my youngest (in the middle) are obviously big, but they all loooooove them, so whatever. LOL! They keep trying to wear them at mealtime and to bed. ;)

Yep, with lots of room to spare. They're loosely based on this tutorial (http://www.sewing.org/html/letsmittens.html) but I didn't like their pattern so I made my own, and I did the elastic/casing differently. Took a few tries to get it how I wanted it.

What a great idea. Im going to try this. Thanks so much for the idea. I might even have a sweater thatDH dosnt wear any more. Or even an old fleece blanket I could use
